Intelligent Recode not for WMV output?


Trying out the new V5 program, been pretty happy so far. Since my system currently doesn't support Quick Sync, my current emphasis in testing is looking at the new support for additional codecs. So far it has gone well, although there is one area I have a question about.

If I load an WMV file (in particular one encoded VC-1), and output to the same format, it doesn't appear to support the Intelligent Recode feature, as it shows "major recode required" for the output. Is this something that isn't supported for this type output?

Intelligent recoding only works for MPEG-1/2 and H.264. All other formats are opened as uncompressed YUV, decoded by ffmpeg, and require a full recode on output.
